Imma tell you sumthin’.

I used to think I was too good to be this, but I think I am nosy. Hear me out.

I just got sucked into this Facebook News Feed reading and photo stalking. And because of that, I forgot all about feeding the baby on time and giving my older daughter a bath. SO wrong! I know!

BUT, I found out that our HOT high school quarterback lost all his hair! AND, another former hotty looks like he’s very well “fed”! HA!

This was so much fun – I need to FB photo-stalk more often!!

At least I didn’t play Candy Crush for 4+ hours. I will not go down that road! Please don’t make me…

Now that I have fed, bathed, and put the girls to bed, we can talk. Just you and me. And we’re going to talk about this beautiful Cookies and Cream Flourless Chocolate Cake!

For my husband, this cake is the cake. He is a chocoholic and if he could, he would marry said cake.

Last week was his birthday, so I had to make it for him. Again.

I sure do know how to make him happy. All it takes is chocolate and cake.

I think I probably make this cake about every other month for him. I thought it was time to share it with you because, unlike the flourless chocolate cake topped with powdered sugar and/or raspberries, my cake is filled and topped with cookies! And it is so, so good – crunchy, silky, and very chocolaty. And fancy!

    This.looks.ridiculous. Alas alack, I would have to omit the cookies in favor of almond flour…any idea of how much would be a good idea?

  2. My first time here n I have to say I’m in love!!!!
    N yes I’m gonna marry this cake. .. Yes!
    N facebook stalking… god I miss that. .. life has left me so busy that sometime I’m probably the last one to know anything going around…
    Anyways this cake is stunning!!! Love it πŸ™‚

  3. Hey…. sometimes even mother’s need something to keep us happy. Don’t feel bad… I used to play Farmville… what a colossal waste of time… now I realize.

    I totally agree with you hubby… this cake is marriage material. :0)

  4. I’d marry that cake, too, Kate!
    I can just picture your spouse saying “I take you, cake I mean Kate, to be my lawfully wedded dessert I mean wife . . .”

    Lovely photos, and the result looks like so much more than just 4 ingredients. Four decadent ingredients, to be sure.


  5. Oh it’s not just you, I used to do that too when kids were younger… now that they have busier life (which makes me busier), I don’t even know what’s going on. Some friends (not very close though) got married, got pregnant, or have a baby, and I had no idea… Sometimes facebook stalking can be important…until you feel like out of loop. xD I saw this photo earlier and I got speechless! Such a spectacular cake!!

    Oh my goodness … i couldnt believe that cake was real so i had to come to your blog to check the recipe! gorgeous photography!

  7. Eggs, Chocolate, Butter and oreos…. Oh MY!!! Positively dreamy…. I do.

    Ok, you had me laughing out loud at the FB stalking! I get it. A few weeks ago an old boyfriend friended me. I haven’t talked to him in 25 years… since he dumped me for a police dispatcher with BIG bangs and BIG hips. I sat on the friend request for about a week, then couldn’t help myself. I said yes… not sure if I won’t unfriend him soon, but I wanted to see what sort of pictures he had. He didn’t age well, and I felt sort of bad that that made me feel good. He used to tease me about weight… (I weighed a good 99 lbs) and I admit it made me smile that his wife is probably 3 of what I was then.
    Ok… probably TMI, but I haven’t told anyone else!! Kinda had to get it out. Now I think I will unfriend him!

  8. oh em ge….this cake is the bomb, Kate! I can see why your love is happy! Mine is also chocoholic and he sure would appreciate cake like this esp. on his birthday! I am LOVING your pictures….LOVING em’! πŸ˜€
    Enjoy your week!

  9. Lovely cake indeed. If only I had some oreo cookies to give it a try … oh well, guess it wasn’t meant to be. πŸ™‚ I’ll just enjoy a slice of yours in my mind.

  10. Pinned. holy.moly.

    I can see what anyone would want to marry it! What an amazing birthday cake this is! I have wanted to make a flourless choc cake for awhile, and wow, I just need to do what you did!
